Available via broadcast only

Grounded in Simplicity Parenting, this course provides support for families with children of all ages, teaching them the importance of surrounding children with an environment which is calm and nurturing, rhythmical, and conscious.  These are the foundations for health, resilience and self-regulation.  Families learn to provide predictability and security, as well as how to create space for a child's creative imagination with free play and learning how to involve children in home life tasks and strengthening your unique family culture.

Parents and care-givers will also learn how to filter out the adult world as we explore the effects of media and adult conversation on the young child.

Parents who take steps along this pathway learn methods to break negative habitual patterns, strengthen observation and appreciation skills, see struggles in parenting as gifts, create spaciousness and build joy, wonder and confidence in parent and child relationships.

The course consists of 4 ninety-minute sessions from 10:30am - 12:00pm CST on the following dates:
     August 6:    Compassionate Parenting
     August 13:  Conscious Environment
     August 20:  Rhythm of Home Life
     August 27:  Filtering Out the Adult World
